Research and Professional Interests

I teach courses that involve plant pathology, grapevine diseases, and plant disease management. My research interests include studying fungicide resistance in grapevine pathogens, grapevine disease diagnosis and epidemiology, and testing sources of disease resistance in grapes. I am also interested in working to increase sustainability of wine grape production.
